(Cleveland) - While people here in Ohio and across the country are having to stay at home because of COVID-19, there's one bright light. If you have to drive, the price of gas continues to go down.
Patrick DeHaan of gasbuddy.com says the average price of gas in Ohio is $1.76, third lowest in the nation, only behind Oklahoma and Wisconsin. One gas station on West 130th had a posted price of $1.09. Gas Buddy found a few gas stations in Cleveland selling it for $1.29.
DeHaan says it's all because of sales of gas dropping sharply, combined with the price war between Russia and Saudi Arabia. Has he ever seen prices this low? DeHaan says, no, not for many years.
He expects the low prices to continue through the summer, maybe around $2.00 a gallon.
